Truck Accidents on United States Freeways and Roads
A freeway is a type of road designed for safer high-speed operation of cars, trucks and buses. Freeways are built to accommodate high numbers of vehicles traveling at fast speeds, linking our busy cities and ports, making transportation easier and more efficient. Built with no stoplights or intersections, you would think there would be fewer crashes on freeways than on normal roads.
Unfortunately, this is not the case. Every year in America, many serious truck accidents occur on freeways throughout the United States. Tractor trailers, 18-wheelers, delivery vans and cargo vehicles cause crashes on freeways every day. Major accidents are also common on highways, interstates, turnpikes and expressways.
Interstate 15 between Southern California and Las Vegas is the most dangerous freeway in the United States, according to a 2010 study by the U.S. Department of Transportation. Excessive speed, driving under the influence and distracted driving are among the major causes of accidents on this freeway.
After a Freeway Accident, Get Proper Medical Care Without Financial Worry
Serious freeway accidents involving car-truck collisions are life changing. Sometimes, the accident results in death, and an entire family changes forever. Other times, serious personal injuries such as paraplegia, quadriplegia or traumatic brain injuries mean a lifetime of medical care will be necessary.
The purpose of filing a legal claim after a serious truck accident is to protect your future — and the future of your family. Our system of laws requires that those responsible for causing injury or death compensate the injured person or the surviving family. Freeway accident and truck accident victims often must take time off work for medical reasons; a personal injury claim can provide compensation for lost wages. Medical recovery following a major traffic collision can be painful; compensation may be available for pain and suffering, as well as future medical needs or adaptive technology.
